He's not black, so he can't be charged with murder in Texas, but...

DAMMMMNNNNN!

thats a bigger crowd with more grey hairs than id expect. a good sign.

You can't say Beto hasn't put in the work.  Imagine how many times he's crossed Texas between his Senate campaign and this one.

Lotta Austin and San Antonio retirees moved to the Hill Country.  It's less than 90 miles from each, and is now the center of the largest wine tourism district behind Sonoma County.

The crowds coming to see him are getting bigger and bigger. Go Beto !
 
2022-08-18 8:40:04 PM  
If he doesn't win this election, then I think we can safely say there's simply no hope for Texas and that we should nuke it from orbit.
 
2022-08-18 8:50:22 PM  
I think we need to go to the judges on that.

Judge Kelso?

Beto is running a great campaign. I still think he'll lose. This guy would be a national treasure but for the simple fact that he lives inside of Texas.

I hate these celebrations of some "sick burn" that presume a decent one-liner is somehow transformative ...

Yeah but he talked about guns and that's bad so he can't ever win anything ever because Fark Moderates said so. Sorry, everyone.

Beto O'Rourke thinks nothing of banning guns because just commits mass murder by spoken word.

DeSantis is very popular here in Florida ironically due to how many Floridians he helped cause the death of. We all hate each other here.

See now, right to the point. Point out the obvious. Stick the knife and give it a lil twist.

He went to places a Democrat hadn't visited since Victor Morales ran against farking Phil Gramm for Senate in the mid 1990s.

He'd have been a US Senator and rid us of that buffoon Ted Cruz if he'd not gone with DiFi-esque cringe.

There are infinitely many other ways to address the guns issue ~without~ making yourself into the caricature that the right wing is drooling for, for political ads.

Imagine if Bloomie hadn't handed Pat Toomey the PA seat, and Beto could've just managed to have used a wee bit of nuance.

SineMancin would exist in an alternate timeline that we didn't have to live in.

Abbott is a firm believer in the "keep your head down if you're ahead" campaign approach. He'll refuse debates and minimize campaigning.

Honestly, with how much he embarrasses himself when he is required to do something, he's probably making the right choice.
